(BBC Sports) - WBO featherweight champion Scott Harrison says he's in great shape after resuming training following injury.

Harrison was forced to delay his twice-postponed defence against William Abelyan until 19 June after damaging his right bicep in training.

"I'm sure it will prove to be third time lucky, but it won't be for Abelyan because he's going to get the hammering of a lifetime," said Harrison.

"I've just started punching and if anything it feels a lot stronger."

After receiving intensive treatment from top sports injury specialists, Harrison has been given the all-clear to resume full training for the Braehead Arena bout.

"I'm ready to go," insisted the 26-year-old Cambuslang fighter.

"The injury was unfortunate and happened at a bad time as the training was going so well.

"It put me out of action for a couple of weeks which was frustrating but now I'm back in the gym and the arm feels great again.

"The rest and treatment has done it the world of good and now I can't wait to get it on at last with Abelyan."
